I am planning to write a book on project management. A colleague clued me in to LaTex as a platform in which to write this book (for ultimate self-publishing). So I realize I have a learning curve ahead of me but am willing to tackle it. However, I recall him saying (or my hearing) that I needed to get an editor called WinEdt. If so, is that a component of LaTex? Or a separate editor that I must get that works in conjunction with LaTex?
I have a copy of "The not so short introduction to LaTex" and a search shows no mention of WinEdt. So, did I misunderstand? Is this a component of LaTex that handles editing? Or do I need no such thing and LaTex is sufficient for writing/editing and it is all-in-one? If, however, I do need WinEdt where do I find it? Thanks.
